Dior Presents Cruise Collection 2016
Make-up created and styled by Peter Philips for Dior Cruise Collection runway show.
Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Make-up, composed a fresh and very natural look. “The make-up is very natural as I wanted to create a contrast with Raf Simons’s collection, which plays with checks, prints and different associations,” explained Peter Philips. He also emphasized that this “luminous, naturally flattering beauty look reflects the relaxed side of the collection, embodying its cool, fluid style.”
The complexion was fresh and luminous, as Peter Philips specified, “Diorskin Star Fluid Foundation was blended into the skin to give good coverage that remained luminous and transparent.”
He added that for a slight touch of colour he used “the creamy Diorblush Cheekstick in Rosewood (a limited edition for Autumn 2015), blended into the cheekbones as well as the chin to frame the face.” The finishing touch to this diaphanous complexion was a veil of Diorskin Nude Cosmopolite Edition Highlighter (a limited edition for Autumn 2015).
Peter Philips chose a range of natural shades from the Eye Reviver palette for the eyes: “I used the Primer as a base across the eyelids, then I selected eye shadows depending on skin tone. Next I applied the darkest shade, which is a stronger brown, just along the lash line, but not too heavily.” He added that “lashes were curled, and coated with black Diorshow mascara, while brows were drawn in with Diorshow Brow Styler Gel and tamed with Diorshow Brow Styler.”
“For very discreet shine I used Dior Contour Universal 001 neutral lip liner and Lip Maximizer in Sunrise 006,” (limited editions for Summer 2015).
“For the manicure I chose three soft shades of Dior Vernis: the classic, natural Muguet, sunny yellow Sunkissed and tender pink Sunwashed,” (the last two are limited editions for Summer 2015).
Styled by Guido Palau, hair looked very natural, and was left down to give free, light movement.
